2000-11-10 Irene Pacheco w pts 12 Masibulele Makepula, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 114-114. In a fight that had appeared to be much closer, and favouring the challenger who worked the body well, Pacheco (111) somehow or other was given the verdict. The fact that Makepula (111) faded badly over the final three rounds made it much closer, but a draw would have been fairer.
